Relic Wines Scarpa Syrah 2011
Save $18.00 (24%)
This wine has noble Syrah aromatics of blackberry, blueberry, bacon fat, olive tapenade, white pepper and rosemary, with a hint of rose. The palate is dense and has a very intense core, promising a long life ahead as it unfurls on the lengthy, very complex finish. Decanting now gives a sense of the glory for those who are more patient than we are! Just three and half barrels produced.
Firm and spicy, with notes of fresh-ground pepper, dried herb and berry, accented by savory damp earth hints. This is tightly wound and in need of aeration or cellar time. Ends with gripping tannins. Best from 2016 through 2026. 79 cases made.
